Students who are applying for admission to Franklin Pierce University are encouraged to complete the financial aid application process as quickly as possible. To do so, students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Franklin Pierce University's School Code is 002575. Please be sure to include this school code on your FAFSA so your results will be forwarded to us for evaluation.
Once FAFSA results are received by the Office of Student Financial Services, staff will review the data and tailor a financial aid package for the student, taking into consideration the student's eligibility for federal, state, and university sources of financial assistance. Students will receive instructions on how to accept/decline online.
Information on education benefits for veterans and military personnel is available through the Registrars Office, along with application instructions.
Students who are anticipating returning to Franklin Pierce University for the next academic year must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1st. Please be sure to include 002575 as the school code for Franklin Pierce University so that your processed FAFSA results are received by the Student Financial Services Office. Students who fail to meet the March 1st application deadline run the risk of losing financial aid. Continuing students who apply on time will be notified of their financial aid information starting May1st. Students will receive notification via their Franklin Pierce email when financial aid awards are available for viewing in their CampusWeb account. Awards must be accepted/declined online. Click here for more details: Accepting/Declining Financial Aid Awards.
As long as the student is making satisfactory academic progress, has not had a significant change to their family financial situation over the last year, and has applied by the March 1st deadline, financial aid packages generally reflect the same levels of grant and scholarship support as in prior years. Notification of financial aid eligibility will be sent to the student via their Franklin Pierce email account.
Note: If your FAFSA results are selected for a review process called “verification,” a request for tax information and other documentation will be made prior to the evaluation of your financial aid application. Please respond promptly to all requests for information.
